Pip Sharp and Jenny Green are two wonderful people who volunteer their time and energy to putting on amazing events that raise funds for us. They organised a fabulous Fashion Show, that took Long Ashton by storm.The event was a huge success thanks to their hard work and excellent organisation skills, and the event raised a whopping £944.39, which will provide vital care for our rescues.
Pip & Jenny (the middle two gorgeous ladies from the right hand side) regularly go above and beyond for Holly Hedge, and we are so grateful that their compassion seems to know no bounds. Not forgetting a huge thank you to the volunteers who joined them and everyone who donated a raffle prize – they were highly sought after!
Hannah Farr has been with Holly Hedge for almost two years and become an integral part of the cattery team. Hannah is always ready with a smile and treats every cat that comes in with respect and love, and consistently works hard to help even the most frightened cat learn to trust people, so they are ready for a loving home.
Hannah took on a huge challenge recently and ran the Simply Health Great Bristol 10K for us! With a recently injured knee, Hannah wasn’t sure if she would be able to run 10k, but two weeks to go her knee rallied and she started training hard and fundraising. Hannah’s determination and hard work paid off, she completed the run in 1 hour, 4 mins & 25 seconds and smashed her fundraising target by raising a total £636!
After completing the run, Hannah said: “A huge HUGE THANK YOU!! to everyone that has donated to help & better the lives of all the cats and dogs at Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary. I know I’ve said it before but I really appreciate all of your support! Thank you for being so kind, my heart feels full!”
We are so grateful to have people like Hannah at Holly Hedge who go above and beyond for animals in need. Thank you Hannah!
At the end of your shop in branch, you’ll receive a token to place in a box of the good cause you’d most like to support. The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive. Each month every Waitrose branch donates £1,000 (£500 in Convenience shops) between 3 local good causes that you choose.
At Waitrose Nailsea, Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary is 1 of the 3 local charities for July.
